Awards and Judge Comments

Healthy plants, but Cyperus helferi and Lobelia are too large for this sized aquarium. There seems to be a lack of direction with the placement of the wood, as well.

Kris Weinhold

Lovely, lush tank, but that Cyperus helferi is going to quickly outgrow the tank. They are very big plants!

Karen Randall

Nice use of the Cyperus and good use of hardscape. The Lobelia feels lopsided on the right and might do better on the left to blend into the Cyperus. The barbs are beautiful, but seem oversized for the tank. Nicely done!
